For some time Alaskan law has prohibited the shipment of wine to other states and countries. Today, Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, R-Kodiak, has proposed a law to allow licensed wineries to ship orders under 5 gallonsof wine to anywhere mail-order wine is allowed. With half a dozen small wineries around the state, internet and niche sells would be extremely useful in making Alaska wineries more competitive in the market.
Personally I would love to try an Alaskan wine. Made from ingredients such as salmonberries and rhubarb, it’s sure to be distinct!
